The Revival Collection - Saphiret Fly Necklace
The Revival Collection features redesigned one of a kind pieces using antique materials.
In another life, this sweet little insect pendant spent her life as a Victorian brooch. When we found her, her clasp was missing but we knew she still had a lot of life left in her.
She is made from a single satin saphiret cabochon set within a gold coloured metal. With mother of pearl wings and paste stone accents, she has a lot of personality. She has been strung onto a new sterling silver box chain.
Our little insect has lived a good life and shows signs of wear. Whilst perfectly sound and safe to wear, her saphiret tummy has a few chips to the corners (which you can see in the photos) and a little wiggle between the prongs. The other stones are in great condition and also securely in place. Owing to the rarity and delicateness of the stones, I would recommend this piece be saved for special occasions or when you are sure you can protect her from damage.
